We can always wait til the end of the month. Hoping that they did a Jan soft pull.

Or we can just apply on the 1st and again on the 31st if denied.

What should your score be to APP for Amex?  I am always declined even for the Green, which I thought was the easiest to obtain. :smileyhappy:

My BCP turns one in Jan!

 

It's been a pretty great card.


:smileysurprised: How do you like it? How much did you earn so far?


Oddly, enough... I stopped tracking it after seeing how quickly the AF paid for itself. I'm not a heavy spender and it only took a few months.

I'm thinking about the BCP also and my spending will support the AF. However, I want to show some love to other card as well :smileysurprised:.
